The outlet had been banned from trading at night following an attack in early November which began inside before spilling out onto the street.

Members of Sheffield Council's licensing sub-committee met last Friday to consider whether it should be allowed to retain its licence following the disorder.

They agreed to let the licence-holders continue trading, provided they comply with the following five conditions:

* Enhancing the CCTV system* Joining the CRAC (City Centre Retailers Against Crime) radio system* Employing SIA registered door staff at weekends and some bank holidays* Not employing six named individuals or allowing them to get involved in the supervision of the business* Ensuring management and staff undertake conflict management training.
